Feminism(s) 2006: Feminisms and Literature Postgraduate Seminar.
Sheffield Hallam University, Sheffield, UK, Saturday 11th November 2006.

    A seminar for postgraduates studying literature and feminism to present and discuss their research. The day is primarily concerned with examining the relationship between feminism and literature, the implications of labels such as 'feminist' or 'women's writing', and the impact of feminist literary criticism and politics upon literature today. It is the discussion of these themes across the different topics which is important – the day is devised as a discussion of similar concerns across literature. We would also like to encourage students working with poets, dramatists as well as fiction writers.

records, are welcome.

Presentations examining Medieval women "reading women's breast(s)" are
particularly sought; however, the session also open to papers focused on

The Literary History of Sexuality (panel)

This panel addresses the relationship between sexuality and literature in the long eighteenth
century. Critics and
historians, from a variety of perspectives, have suggested that "something happened" to
conceptualizations (and
practices) of the sexual and the literary in and around the eighteenth century--although what
that "something"
was remains an open question. Accordingly, this panel will explore the mutually shaping
relations between
sexuality and literature, from Restoration to Romanticism. Engagements with Foucault
(critical and/or
sympathetic) are welcome but not essential.

"Elusive faces of the feminine. Writing and photography, face to face"

3-5 May 2007

This conference is about the relationship between photography and
writing, and the places where they meet, dialogue, cross and flee
each other. In this relationship between the photographic and the
literary, we are interested in the importance of the female face, an
alterity that neither medium can capture.

Modern Masculinity: A Narrative of Heroism and Failure

Papers are invited for a special panel at ‘Return to Gender’, the forthcoming graduate conference at the University of Glasgow on 25th November, 2006. In a recent news item reviewing the latest ‘Superman’ film, the news anchor asked if the actor playing Superman was a ‘mincing metrosexual’. What does a modern masculine hero look like? Is the often discussed crisis in masculinity empowering or emasculating? Possible topics include:
